with the united states prior to the war in iraq. the reason we in theory a oppose the war was that we told the bush administration that would blind to that region and we don't underestimate the with them. for you to invade and occupy iraq will be equivalent to pandora's box of evils. you go there and you will unleash evils that we don't understand, all sorts of forest have been unleashed. it's actually run for any country in the world to go and occupy another country, dismantle its government, disbanded government, the spanish police force. and pretend that they know better. you made the decision. you looked to send your troops to iraq and i feel bad for every single human life that was lost in iraq, whether it was iraqi lives or american lives because those young soldiers didn't go there because they wanted to go there. this wasn't a decision taken by the bush administration. not every american situation like the war in iraq. what i'm trying to tell you is this is a controversial issue, but if you try to become part of the lies and forget you are an american and these are iraqis, believe
them for karzai or is the united states sending these troops because of the united states' own security interests. if it's the united states' own security interests, which is the argument that the president makes, then the president is somewhat undercut his own leverage with karzai because his biggest argument to karzai is if you don't clean up the corruption, if you don't train the afghan troops, then the u.s. troops are leaving. and karzai can come back and say, and who does that hurt? >> david, let me ask you about the costs of the strategy. we assessed the financial costs of the troops and more troops, it is enormous. i was talking a few minutes to general mccaffrey on last hour and he said an honest accounting of strategy to succeed is $15,000 casualties in a five-year commitment. that's what it will take in order to be successful. if the president is willing to ask the american people for such a commitment, do you think the american people are willing to pay it? >> you have to remember at this point the united states is in year eight of this war, so if you took a strategy of five
wouldspike to know whether terrorism is the laeatest secy hity cohowern for the united states and how do you assess the military actions in af hanistan or weather it will turn into another iraqi war? thank youms ery m3 peh. th i think that is an excellent question. first of all, i do continue to believe that the greatest threat to united states securives. are the terrorist neer and the reason is because even though they are small in han, ier, what they have showns that they have no conscience pet counves. of innocent civilians. -- destruction of innocent earvilians. and bece case of technology toy if an portion like that got a weapons of mass destr3 petion and its hands or a muck or chemical or biological city and used it in a cits, s whether it is shanghai or new york, just a few could potentially kill tens of thousands of pauple, maybe hundreds of thousands ups. so it really does pt one an se,traospminary threat. now, the reason we originally went into af hanistan was because alteseda was in afghanistan being hosted by the taliban. tho border of afghanistan andthy are in pas ke mak down th

of the discussion has been around the fence that the united states wants to pursue a counterterrorism strategy where they target specific regions of afghanistan. there's an understanding that if you seven of troops to blame did the entire country that it would take something like half a million troops. nobody is talking about that. there are specific regions, especially in the southern part of afghanistan and, that they're talking about increasing the troops as a way of giving them more control over those regions and an ability to push back against the extremists, the taliban, and al-qaeda. host: what will he be asking of nato? guest: there have been many discussions over the past months to try to increase the number of troop commitments from nato countries as a way of allowing the united states to have slightly less of a commitment. in the speech, i think you will see a strong call from the president for the nato allies and the other allies around world to step up. host: thank you very much for being with us this morning, michael shear. there are a number of "washington post"front page stories. thi
challenges with these prisoners. why move them into the united states while we are still under the threat from radical jihadists? >> schieffer: i want to turn to the massacre at fort hood because you were one of those in congress who immediately began pressing the government for answers when they were giving out very little information. where do you think this thing stands now, congressman? are you satisfied with where it's going so far? >> no, i ti that the government has been too slow in giving us information. there hasn't been enough transparency for members of congress, for the press or for the american people. i think that we need to move very, very aggressively and do a full-scale investigation as to who knew what and where. you know, this alaki guy in yemen. he's been on our radar screen since 2001, 2002. my sources tell me we had evidence back in 2002 that would have enabled us to prosecute him. why didn't we prosecute him then? the other thing i want to know is people want to know who he's been talking to in the middle east. i want to know what alaki is talking to in the united s
unfold, the american people have come out to the polls today across the eastern part of the united states and their voice is being heard. as our voice has been heard sometimes in the echo chamber in the house of representatives, now the real voice of the people has been heard through the ballot boxes in place hes like virginia and new jersey and as we wait to see how it unfolds above and beyond that. this is, mr. speaker, a time for choosing. this is a time for the american people to step up and reclaim their freedom. american people understand what's happened in the last year, a little more than the last year. they understand that there was a secretary of the treasury that came to this capitol and demanded $700 billion tarp fund and a lot of us said no. and everybody here on the floor i believe i'm looking at said no. and along came the nationalization of three large investment banks and a.i.g. and freddie mac and fannie mae and general motors and chrysler and $750 billion economic stimulus package that may have saved government jobs, but hasn't created anything that has to do the way yo

from michigan points out, we do have another document here and that is the united states constitution and i think the most dramatic contrast is when you take speaker pelosi's approach to health care, 20 pounds by the way and i have carried this around to know it is about 20 pounds of paper and you take the u.s. constitution and contrast it to this massive document of 1,990 pages and this is the founding document of our country. we don't need a government takeover of health care, we need to fix the problems that are broke. we don't need to break the things that are great in this country. we need to continue this debate and encourage the american people to stay engaged because the american people want the problems fixed, but they don't want the government that couldn't even run a cash for clunkers program properly to be taking over their health care and interfere in their relationship with their doctor. . mr. broun: frankly if you look at that document, the small one you just dropped down, the constitution of the united states, you won't find any constitutional authority in that documen
for the congress of the united states to take a look at your anti-trust exemption. i think you are an $8 billion organization who has not taken seriously your responsibility to the players. the fact of the matter is, yes, people want to play. the fact of the matter is they are going to be injured. and we know no matter what kind of helmet you build or what kind of equipment you have, it is a dangerous sport, and people are going to be injured. the only question is what are you going to do? are you going to pay for it? are you going to pay the injured players and their families for the injures that they have received in helping you to be a multi-billion-dollar operation? that is the only question. i know that you do everything that you possibly can to hold on to those profits, but i think the responsibility of this congress is to take a look at that anti--trust exemption that you have. in my estimation, take it away. i yield back the balance of my time. >> i thank the gentlewoman for her modest suggestions.
